Government wins?? News wins???

I found it very predictable and had a choppy style of storytelling. I lost patience within the first hour, and discontinued watching.

It was not as good as the previous parts of the series, it felt rushed, so probably it was a good time to end it.

I abhor the senseless, speed-talking that writer's replace normal banter with. It's absolutely chaotic and weary to be forced to listen to. It's people constantly arguing, being hostile and insulting, talking all at once, wanting to be heard but showing any aptitude in how to listen. Everyone jumping in with machine gun sentences whenever a wisp of air gives opening to someone else grabbing a space to interject. I turned the vid OFF after the first 30 sentences and returned all disc's. My mental chemistry is far higher than this childish way of conducting one self. This isn't acting, it's out-yelling at one another. Another shallow, low-life, mindless movie from Hollywood.

Could almost say I "hate-watched" this series to the end. It does have some good socio-economic/political commentary throughout, but it does get "preachy" over time. The female lead is supposed to be some kind of uber competent girly ditz which also gets irritating as the series progresses. A very soft recommendation if you can't find anything else to watch.

I loved this series and hated to see it end! Three seasons only made me want at least two more...
I felt a real bond with several of these characters, which is relatively rare for me. Will, Jim, Charlie, Sloan, and so many others, will be missed!
Television at its best.

Television as it should be. A meaty series which includes philosophy, romance and humour. Missed it the first time around, but now have enjoyed the whole series.

I can see the criticism for being a bit ranty, but the rants make me happy. My main complaint is that there only 6 episodes (and only 3 seasons). Ah, well.

Good drama, but not as good as earlier seasons. On the other hand, this series ends with a happy ending, though there is a "death in the family".

Same super quality of script and crew of actors that focused on the integrity of reports during the Boston Bombing event (race to be first had endangered wrong suspects), wikileak-like controversial (failed black-op) and pop-news based on crowd sourced social networks. Jeff Daniels showed off his singing in the finale

Charlie: And I ask him (grandson Bo), "What's a kid from New Rochelle doing singing about Memphis?" He said, "Memphis is a stand-in for wherever you are right now. That it really means that's how I got here."

Will: Charlie Skinner was crazy. He identified with Don Quixote, an old an with dementia who thought he could save the world from an epidemic of incivility simply by acting like a knight. His religion was decency.
